In FootSweat, our author takes us through different snippets of times they’ve gone hitchhiking through Canada. I’ve always viewed hitchhiking as something perilous, so this zine was a step-by-step account of the strange people you can encounter, sleepless nights, roadside coffee at truck stops, and the uncomfortable physical and emotional states one can go through. Intermingled with a few train hopping stories and distant memories, FootSweat manages to take the reader right into the very worn shoes of one person and their tiring experiences of hitchhiking. –Tricia Ramos (FootSweat, PO Box 273, Moncton, NB ETC 8K9, Canada)
